Black Swan Dec 2021 Breakfast Meet

Post by Taff50ish »

Hi All,

Well, I managed to get out once more before the end of the year... :D :D :D But another rainy day, but Hey-Ho.... So lets crack on. Early'ish start today, 08:15 approx and headed off South bound down to the village of Ockham, just off the A3 there!!! To the Black Swan (pic's in the Gallery) where I was in June earlier this year, but today it was much, much quieter than then... I was chatting with one of the Marshals and he said that was one of their busiest days this year. They hold their car meets on the 2nd Sunday of the Month if anyone is interested? Today's was just a 1 off for Christmas / New Year I think???
Anyhow, I got down there and I'm glad I did, there was not many (compared with June) here, but what was, was amazing!!! So where to start....??? I know, we'll start off with the Fords...

Nice to see this supporting the Steel Rostyle's....

Hi John,
Along with the others there, well done for making the effort in those weather conditions!

Cars are only pieces of metal, but when it comes to it I struggle with taking mine out in bad weather, also I don't enjoy standing around in the rain either :)

:goodluck:

Hi John,
You're certainly making the most of this bad weather..... :lol:

As always, what great photos of so many wonderful cars, thanks for brightening up my day! My appetite has been well and truly whetted for the upcoming show season now.
My star of the show is that lacquer red Capri :D :D :D ..........Your car always attracts a lot of attention at shows, and rightly so.

The Dart is indeed that, or an SP250 to be pedantic.... :sorry:
While I'm being a pedant, the old racing Bristol is an AC Greyhound. :sorry: :sorry:

Thanks again for all these fantastic photos.

Andrew.

Useless trivia for race fans:
The Tyrrell F1 team were based not far from the Black Swan in Ockham.

Hi Andy, Andrew,

I think if I had the choice made for me, I wouldn't take it out in this sort of weather too. But its just too much fun with the rear wheel drive not to... :xd: :lol: :D :xd:

Yep, I knew again you would be able to put me right on the Bristol... Wasn't 100% but now I know!!! The Dart.... OK, now you're just showing off... :lol: :lol: :lol: Well done though!!!

Yep, I'm really looking forward to the new season of meets etc... Speaking of which.... just got back form what I can only assume is the first meet of the Year??? Watch this space for further pics...

Cheers all for now,

John...

P.S. Happy New Year all....
